The Balla Effect

Top  Previous  Next

Giacomo Balla (1917-1958) was an Italian futurist painter whose paintings try to reproduce the speed and movement of objects, often using swirling colored curves. This effect was inspired by Giacomo Balla's early paintings.

 

The number of arcs in the image is set by the number of arcs slider, while the length of the arcs is set by the angle slider (large angles mean longer sweeps of color).

 

Having a high color wobble means that the colors are less similar to the ones in the original image.
